dna, our political dna. i think the operative word here is courage. my colleague jack hyler, indiana, 1994, i am running for governor because of a controversial issue on the floor. i remember jack standing up and saying, i do not remember the issue, but he stood up and said, this is the vote we should all passed. it may cost me my election, but i think it ithe right thing to do. he passed it and lost. i am not saying that is the reason he did not succeed in his reelection, but it was a statement of courage that i am talking about. from my point of view, this is the right thing to do, take it or leave it. i remember, i was running for governor -- before the primary, i had 100% voting record with the nra. with the assault weapon ban -- the idea that a person could walk to the gun store and purchase and ak-47 did not appeal for me -- to me. i voted against it. i remember -- they said, you could lose the election, you could lose the primary. i said, at least then i know why. [laughter] [applause] i think the operative word is courage. i must add, i think there's some responsibility with

into another recession is to jack up taxes on job creators, small businesses, and yet that is precisely what my opponent is proposing? >> that is absolutely not true. we have to look at them at some point of time. you do not do this in a vacuum and not just do it in the last days of a political campaign. it is interesting to me -- if you acknowledge all of governments and just look at the $2.30 trillion -- it would still take eight years to pay down our national debt. yet you not commit to a single program to pay down national debt. you keep saying the same stuff that we have to cut spending. if you cut everything, abolish every government department, it would take us eight years to pay down. >> we will move on to foreign policy issues. >> with respect, the premise of your statement is not accurate. i have campaigned for two years on very specific strategies to reduce the spending in government. we have to get the spending under control. your statement is not accurate. >> let me go back to the policy questions, foreign policy question about the situation recently with the north africa. american
of europe are. the economy is teetering on the edge of recession. the were seen can do is jacked up taxes on small businesses and entrepreneurs or job creors. that makes it all the more likely to push us into a recession. and for the 23 million people who struggling for work, the worst thing to do is hurt the small businesses that create those jobs. >> it is fair to say that the president has reduced taxes. he has reduced taxes for small businesses 18 times. he cut taxes for '95 -- for 95% of families out there. the question is do we ask everyby to sacrifice? when you look at the marginal rate in the united states, when ronald reagan took office, the marginal office with 71% to 72%. it is interesting to me that the greatness that people speak of in terms of the united stas, when we talk about the 1940's, the 1950's, the 1960's, 1970's, the marginal rate that folks paid was much greater. nobody says we will go back to that. at the same time, during the clinton years, we had marginal rates that were a little bit higher than they are now and we had some of the best economic times that the co
. this is "the washington post" -- this comes from the story you probably heard about jack welch yesterday. there is the math and statistics. we want to get your reaction. tell us your job status as well as it currently stands. the phone numbers will be on your screen. you can also reach out via social media. can i ask your job status? caller: right now i am disabled. host: how long is that? . caller: one year. host: tell us a little bit about your current situation and your reaction to 7.8% unemployment figure. caller: i have three torn ligaments in my shoulder. host: are you getting disability. disability caller: yes. . host: what type of work do you do? are you pursuing some kind of work that does not require physical labor? caller: i am going to school. . host: for what? . caller: a want to be a technician. host: what type of technician? caller: a mechanic. host: quaker town, pennsylvania, good morning. caller: glad to get through again. this has to do, when you talk about work or work ethic, today is the day that we set aside -- i called last year and talked to susan on october 6 last
jack -- or the defense of marriage at-the people protection clause because there is no rational basis for it does not pass scrutiny. the idea of which level of scrutiny it must pass is a question. but they are happy to argue both. this case is interesting because justice kagen was involved at the district court level during her confirmation level where it came out. her office had been involved in the internal discussion of the strategy of the case, so she will be recused in that case. that would make a real wrinkle in the case. the district found that the first circuit also found that the defense of marriage act was unconstitutional. they ruled on able protection clause and ended up creating a new level of scrutiny. it is a heightened but not officially heightened scrutiny which would be the source of some concern by the supreme court, figuring out which level of scrutiny is appropriate to be used here. this is the only one that has an appellate decision being reviewed. that petition was ready for consideration at the first conference. but they ended of not taking action on it. they s
a very different conversation that the one you would have with jack lew it or whoever is thinking through what obama would do in november/december of this year and for six months of next year. i do not think it is impossible. i think maybe it is just the way we will conduct ourselves, which is pick extremely quickly after election day. i do not buy the argument the partisanship is so bad. that will be an unusual situation, what we have not had in a long time. in any case, i think -- it is not going to be a lot of clues about this over the next five weeks, i do not think. >> which is unfortunate. >> congressman gordon. >> the partnership -- partisanship is very bad and will take leadership to get through that. going back to the ambassador's comments about how their romney would govern. i completely agree with the deal making aspect of working with congress. we saw that as governor of massachusetts he brought democrats into the cabinet. he did a good job there. i think he personality-wise would do well there. i also think he would try to bring the efficiency to the executive bridge and will
please stand up when i call their name. the first is john jack danforth. [applause] from the great state of wyoming, former u.s. senator.

[applause] now i have to lecture first about these things. this all will be dark as we go forward. even if you have it on silent and you turn it on, it flashes with lights. hopefully we can live a for 90 minutes without these things turned on. turn them off. keep them off. secondly, this is not the primary debate. all the cheering we have heard, we hope we will not hear that until the end of the debate. there are many people in this audience to are part of history. you are here in person. there'll be millions of people sitting at home and watching this and listening very carefully to the president and to governor romney and trying to determine what they will do in november. it is wrong for us to intrud
was running against a spectacular republican, jack ryan, like a mitt romney of illinois. at into would begin obama. once again, the obama campaign digs up child custody records. he had been married to someone from star trek. and she had made allegations that he to occur to sex clubs. not that they entered. she said no. but he had asked her to go. still, the republicans demanded that he withdraw. and obama ran against someone else. obama has not faced a real opponent. what are they going to get -- i mean, we have a mormon who's roughest drink is a glass of chocolate milk. this will be tough for the obama team to crack. once he becomes president, mitt romney is exactly what the country needs. host: what you think the next weeks will be like? guest: it is absolute hysteria and screams of lies. i have been promoting the book. on mitt romney watching to cut taxes on the rich. those are estimates made by a liberal tax group. the liberal tax purpose taken that estimate back. the obama campaign was running ads on that, how he ruwants to cut the tax rates. he said the overnight, no i am not cutting t

strongest allies in congreswhen i was secretary of defense was jack mur fete, chairman of the defense appropriation subcommittee. we used to do more on a bipartisan basis than seems possible these days. we will make the same health care that is available to congress available to all americans. we will cover all kids. and only that, we have to bring down costs by pooling the catastrophic cost. and we will give tax breaks directly to families and to businesses. so they can provide health care to their employees. and we will also finally do something about the cost of prescription drugs. they blocked allowing prescription drugs into this country from canada. we will allow it. they did not allow the government used negotiating power to give discounts to seniors. we will allow it. we will also stand up to the drug companies and do something about the drug company ads on television which are out of control. >> it's hard to know where to start. the fact of the matter significant change in healthcare in the last several years was the medicare reform bill this year. it's the most sweeping cha
